July 2016

We spent the 4th of July in Antimony again this year.  It was lot of fun.  We met up for breakfast in Kingston and watched the parade.  Then, we went back to Antimony and the kids were all in the parade.  I love Antimony and the small town celebration.  We went to the park and did the fun races, egg toss, etc.  Since it was on a Monday we headed home for fireworks, but Chestyn got sick, so we skipped those.  

Tawnya had a fun weeknight BBQ.  The kids had blast on the waterslide (including Chantry).  Love summertime!!  

Gleave reunion was once again a success.  They had fun photobooth this year and really awesome family bingo game.  It was the first year we did not camp.  It was good and bad- a lot less stressful but missed being there the whole weekend.

The weekend of the 15th, 16th and 17th, we went camping for Jason's birthday at Big Lake.  Since it was quite far and we didn’t have any time off work, we decided to tent camp.  It was actually a lot of fun.  The kids loved doing something a little different.  The weather was perfect for it too- nobody froze.  We went for some fun rides, ate yummy food and had a great time with friends.

The weekend of the 24th, we camped by mammoth so we could go to Duck Creek days.  It was one of my favorite trips this year.  It was just the Orton's and us- The Jensen's and Candice and her kids rode up for the evening one night.  On Saturday we rode with the Orton's over to Yankee and back and I always LOVE that ride.  I took one picture is all- must have been having too much fun.

I love mildly Wednesday afternoons with the kids.  I work from 7-11 and have the rest of the day to have fun with them.  We do fun things like movies, aquatic center, skating at the college, park, get snow cones or whatever we can come up with.  It is also our appointment day so we have to cram those in between too.
Our first weekend home since the beginning of April and I just happened to get my wisdom teeth out.  Chantry took work off to go with me and my mom watched the boys- Randilyn went to Antimony with the girl cousins.  She had so much fun over there with all the fair stuff and grandma taking her shopping and to the lake.  I missed her little butt like crazy, but it was a good time to have her go.  Of course we couldn’t just sit home, so we went on rides while my chipmunk cheeks and bruised up face went away. 

Another busy month come and gone- Onto August.  School starts August 16th and we are not even close to wanting our summer to be over.
